The scene where Lisa acquires her monstrous braces and breaks her mirror is based on a scene from the 1989 Tim Burton film Batman where Jack Napier discovers his transformation into the Joker. See more »

The nitrous oxide cylinder at the end of the episode is marked N²O. Chemical formulas use subscript for numbers, at least nowadays (the original Berzeluis notation used superscript and was still used during the first half of the 20th century). See more »

Amazing Episode!
8 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the seventeenth episode of the fourth season of the Simpsons. I regard this episode as one of my all-time favorites. This is just a hilarious episode, especially as we see Homer fighting for the working class. There are just too many scenes to highlight from the grotesque braces Lisa is forced to wear to the cultural references of The Beatle's Yellow Submarine film to 1989's Batman to Jimmy Hoffa.

In this episode, "Last Exit to Springfield," Mr. Burns decides to take away the dental plan which causes anger in Homer because that means he has to pay for the braces Lisa needs. Homer is voted as the union leader and now he decides to fight Burns, who promises to give Homer the fight of his life.

Overall, this is an excellent episode and is one of my personal favorites. The jokes are incredibly strong and just watching Homer and Burns is worth your time. I rate this episode 10/10.
